Bottle. 12 fl. oz. Black beer with brown head. Aroma of creamy fudge. Light carbonation, medium to full bodied, and a slick texture. Sweet chocolatey flavor with some roasted coffee bean that was not as apparent in the aroma. A nice after-dinner brew.

Got Stout? (173) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 17, 2005
I am in love with this beer. Typical malty / roasty aroma that is fitting for a Stout. But the drink! Holy Almighty Roast! Bang, like a bag of roasted coffee beans was just thrown in your general direction at a high rate of speed with the intention to take your head off. Super, super burnt carmel and toffee. Then, just as quckly as it came, the flavor dissapears into a mildly roasted flavor of... Graham Crackers? Good stuff!

Nice classic cream stout. As Colonel Potter said, "Not enough o’s in smooth to describe this one" The roastiness is there, but subdued and lots of flavor here. One of the few stouts that I could use as a session beer.

coharahawk (170) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Pours very dark brown with a bubbly tan head that fades rather quickly. Aroma is very chocolately and reminds of hershey syrup with some roastiness as well. Flavor is dark chocolate with roasted malts and coffee and some lactose. Very smooth mouthfeel but slightly thinner than expected. Very easy to drink.

12 oz bottle, poured black with a thin off-white head. Aroma of coffee, sweet malt, and dark chocolate. Not as strong smelling as many stouts.Well balanced and very drinkable

HoppyAlesToYou (167) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Chocolate, roasted coffee, and light resin in the aroma, this stout pours deep brown. The tan head recedes slowly, yielding flavor that fits the aroma. The body is medium, with a creamy slick texture. A very enjoyable seasonal stout.

Pored a very dark brown with a mocha head. Aroma was of chocolate, molasses, coffee, and spice. Flavor was chocolate, molasses, slightly bitter dark chocolate finish. A good beer.

Pours A creamy dark brown/black in my pint glass leaving a thin tan head. Aroma is Sweet chocolate with hints of coffee, and roasted grain. Flavor is much the same. Very rich, and smooth. I could drink this all night. Excellent!
